Cannot connect to shared folder

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am unable to connect to my shared folder. I can ping the VM, I have set it up to have shared folders, uninstalled/reinstalled VMware Tools twice, completely/temporarily disabled the firewall to make sure that wasn't the issue, updated the registry as mentioned here.  I am running out of ideas here. I have attached a few screenshots of what my setup looks like. Any help would be appreciated.

Figured it out. Apparently you can't do \\Server\C$\Share it has to be \\Server\Share. 

Not sure why C$ doesn't work, but oh well.

So, inside the VM, is drive Z mapped to the shared folder?
